This maybe - but it's online. It's easy to use...
Anyone know of a free plugin for word that allows easy inserting of LaTeX? I was using aurora but the trial ended and I don't get a pay cheque for some time.
Or does anyone know of an editor which has a source/design view, So you can see what your 'tex produces as you type?
I would just copy and paste the images generated but its annoying not being able to re-edit equations.
Of course MathType will do that and do it very well, but it's not free. There's a free, open-source word processor I'm aware of that has a LaTeX equation editor built in: AbiWord. If you go that route, pay attention during the install process; the equation editor is an optional component, so make sure to check that box.
I would stay away from using Word. LaTeX, while having a steep learning curve, is simply the best for mathematical typing. See here for a reason to use LaTeX for any serious mathematical typing. Someone gave me the excellent advice to learn LaTeX during undergrad days, so that when it came time to type up my thesis, I could do it without learning LaTeX as I went.
I wonder if there's a plugin for OpenOffice, that would be a good compromise.
Or I could just do HTML and use JS to parse it, I found a JS LaTeX parser the other day but the page wouldn't load :/
You know if AbiWord can export to word/openoffice?
